    Default Whats up with throway tools, and junk machines being made these days?

    I'm using 1919...1923 something like that snap on 6 pt sockets with the overstrike marks(hand punched s/o). These things are still holding up after all those years.

    There's good quality out there in most everything, you just have to spend the money for it. I'm sure there was el cheapo stuff in the early 20's too.

    el cheapo stuff started entering much much later than the 20's. Back then, there were no warranties because it was't needed. Those things lasted generations, not just 90 days. lol

    Sounds like all of us almond based queen producers have purchased all the tool and machinery manufacturers and have implemented the same quality principles we uphold in queen breeding to tool making.... Just being snarky here...... I agree with you.....
